Northside Elementary School (Cabot School District) – Success Story

Seeing a need to address sensory seeking behaviors among k-4 students, ISEP grant funds were utilized to purchase sensory equipment for both general education as well as special education students. A

Sensory room was established and a paraprofessional rotated students everyday into the sensory room for 15 minute sessions. Classroom teachers provided assistance in helping to schedule the best time of the day to benefit the students.

Students very much anticipated their time in the sensory room each day. Adverse behaviors among the students significantly reduced among those specific students utilizing the sensory room.
